She will reprise her role as DCI Rachel Carey in The Capture later this month. But Holliday Grainger enjoyed some downtime before returning to TV screens for the second series of the BBC1 thriller.

Later this month Miss Grainger will return for the second instalment of The Capture. According to the BBC, she ‘finds herself in the middle of a new conspiracy – with a new target’. She previously played Lady Chatterley in a 2015 BBC1 production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

The actress, 34, was spotted enjoying a dip in the water during a recent beach trip to Devon. She could be seen wading into the sea in a black T-shirt which she wore over a swimsuit.

The new six-part season of The Capture six-part drama, which was written and directed by Bafta Award-winning filmmaker Ben Chanan, follows the success of the first series which aired in 2019.

He was then falsely accused again and the video evidence wasn’t quite as it seemed. In 2020, The Mail on Sunday revealed that work on the second series of her hit drama.The Capture had been put on hold due to her pregnancy.

It told the story of soldier Shaun Emery, played by Callum Turner, who was released from prison following a conviction for a murder in Afghanistan being overturned due to flawed video evidence.

The actress welcomed twins with her actor boyfriend Harry Treadaway, 37, last year. Harry is also a twin himself with actor brother Luke. The star of TV hits Strike and The Capture once said that ‘the thought of being recognised in the street is petrifying’ and she and Harry  stay out of the limelight.

They don’t use social media, rarely speak about their six-year-long relationship and have not released any details about their twins, who are believed to have been born last spring.

Miss Grainger has recently finished filming Troubled Blood – the latest series of the returning TV drama based on the Strike book franchise. The Capture series two will air on BBC1 later this month.
